Green Infrastructure

Green Infrastructure describes the network of green spaces and water systems that deliver multiple environmental, economic and social values and benefits.

Green Infrastructure includes parks and reserves, backyards and gardens, waterways and wetlands, streets and transport corridors, pathways and greenways, squares and plazas, roof gardens and living walls, sports fields and cemeteries. Green Infrastructure provides and connects vital life support systems for urban environments.

The Green Infrastructure Project

The Green Infrastructure Project at the Botanic Gardens of South Australia is working together with government, industry and community towards the achievement of our vision: South Australians living in healthy, resilient and beautiful landscapes that sustain and connect people with plants and places.

The Green Infrastructure Project is supported by the Botanic Gardens of South Australia, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, and the Adelaide & Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board.
